Dr. Cory Rice graduated from Baylor University with a bachelor’s degree in forensic science and then completed medical school at the Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine in Glendale, Arizona. He attended Methodist Medical Center of Dallas for his internship and residency in Internal Medicine. He was chosen as Chief Resident of his Internal Medicine residency program during his final year. He spent two years in outpatient traditional Internal Medicine (including inpatient work in critical care and hospitalist medicine) before he and his medical partner, Dr. Villanueva, opened a private practice after identifying a profound need for a more directed focus on prevention and wellness as it related to outpatient medicine. They put food first in all of their medical recommendations and are continually amazed at the power of nutrition as it relates to improving function in the body and ultimately restoring health to their patients which, often times, leads to less prescription medicines.
